All good things must come to and end OR Week 10 Weigh In

The events of the weekend have taken their toll and I seem to have found the 2lbs I dropped last week. Gah!!

I feel irritated with myself to be honest. I just went overboard with both drink and food despite knowing what was coming up. But then am I right to be annoyed? I could have said "no, I'm not drinking" on Saturday before the game but I did enjoy it I won't be doing that every Saturday by any means. I could not, however, have turned down the delicious (but overly rich) food cooked by our friend on Saturday night without being rude (although I will be firmer in future about insisting on not eating too much when out and about).

And, apart from Saturday, I was not bad and  I have done a fair bit of exercise this week.

It's just a shame and annoying that so much damage is done from one heavy weekend. Before you say it, I do appreciate that 2 lbs is not that bad and I'll probably get shot of those 2lbs next week. It has, however, set me back by at least a fortnight.

I'm grumpy now and setting down my stats is not going to help but rules is rules:

Starting weight - 17.0.4
Week 10 drop    - +2lbs
Current weight  - 16.3.0
Total drop          - 11.4lbs

Nope, that didn't help but the run first thing this morning (after WI) did lift my spirits and I hope that it's a case of easy on, easy off. Maybe I needed this setback to remind me not to become complacent or start thinking that I've cracked this weight loss malakey....sigh....

Onwards and downwards.

Double Gah!!

DAMN.IT. No platitudes from me, that sucks. Hopefully it's just SoD messing with your mind and a temporary reaction to the rollercoaster your body went on.

It never ceases to amaze me the seeming discrepancy in speed - how is it that we gain weight so much quicker than we appear to lose it? I mean, the basic science re calorie deficit / excess must be the same. Make sure you up your fluid intake this week since it is true that sometimes a very quick gain can partly be down to water retention. And just keep going - you've been an absolute inspiration these last few weeks and I have every faith that soon this blip will be well in the distance.

Ah well. Try again! You're doing well overall, though.

It'll all come out in the wash. You just have to keep washing or it won't! Here's hoping we're both more focused for a bit. I almost persuaded myself off the diet today but just had to sit still until the feeling passed. Keep it up - it'll be gone by next Monday.
